Book Description

1 Aug 1996 Classic Choral Works
for SSA soli, SATB and chamber orchestra The memorable tunes and infectious optimism of Vivaldi's Gloria have made it one of the most popular choral works in the repertoire. For this edition, the distinguished Vivaldi scholar Paul Everett has returned to the autograph manuscript as the most authoritative source. Both full and vocal scores make clear distinction between original and editorial markings, and information on performance practice is relevant without being prescriptive. The vocal score includes an orchestral reduction for rehearsal purposes, and the full score is supplemented by a comprehensive critical commentary and continuo realization. It also includes a unique transcription of Ruggieri's 'Cum Sancto Spiritu', on which Vivaldi based his own setting. Complete orchestral material and vocal scores are available on hire/rental, and full and vocal scores are also available on sale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally - a decent score! 12 July 2009
When performing Vivaldi's Gloria RV589, nothing has irritated me more than using the erroneous Ricordi edition, which takes great liberties with the original text, has a fairly awful keyboard reduction, and has large chunks of the original missing. Time for it to be consigned to a cupboard.

Thank goodness for Oxford University Press - not words one often hears, given their fondness for cramming as much music on a page as possible. This is a clearly presented score, with all the correct music in all the right places. Throw away your Ricordi scores and purchase this immediately.

This is an easy to read score with clear manuscript. A pleasant change from tiny scores you struggle to read without binoculars. This score includes full versions of all numbers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Check Arrangment! 9 April 2014

I was disappointed to find that I had ordered an arrangement for SATB. The reviews had not revealed this and the front cover does not show this information. However, it is a wonderful score, clearly set out for the 4 parts making easy reading so I would recommend it if this is what you are looking for. It is such a lovely piece to sing so I decided to keep this copy and search for the arrangement I really wanted.
